Connor Cruise sends angry text to publicist after Patriots lose Super Bowl

Connor Cruise, in Indianapolis to DJ a pre-Super Bowl party, was apparently in the mood to be teased about the New England Patriots' loss to the New York Giants.

One of his repesentatives, Todd Krim, sent him a teasing tweet saying 'maybe next year,'  after the game. Krim says he got a blistering text message from the son of Tom Cruise.

It read: 'That was a gay ass [bleeping] tweet . . . U don’t say [bleep] like that about my team the second they lose. Low.'
